The Use of Technology

 

Dr. Benedon delivers state of the art Periodontal therapy and Dental Implants using cutting edge technology.

Digital x-rays provide images in seconds while minimizing radiation exposure to a fraction of what was necessary with conventional films. This is accomplished with the use of a small sensor connected to a computer. The x-rays can be enhanced to improve diagnostic images and printed or e-mailed to other dentists or insurance companies.

Intraoral Cameras are small handpieces with a light and video camera that provide images at 40 times magnification allowing images to be displayed on the computer monitor and printed and sent to other dentists and insurance companies to help expedite claims.

Extraoral Digital Cameras are used to photograph existing conditions to allow greater information transfer between Dr. Benedon and his referring dentists.
